My daughter has a son. Wants to give temp custody to me. She’s going to live in another state. Do I have to go before a judge?
NT sure what paperwork is needed . It’s a snap decision on her part and I’m kind of lost on what to do .
She can not just give you custody, that requires a judge and will also require notification/cooperation of the father. She can give you a notarized Power of Attorney, allowing you to authorize medical treatment.
It sounds like you and/or your daughter should seek legal counsel in your area.
